Without substance

Sir, — There is a strident demand for the dismissal of the Narendra Modi Government in Gujarat following the Supreme Court's observations in the Best Bakery case. The demand lacks substance. No Government can be expected to resign over the failure of the prosecution to prosecute a case.

Sir, — The Court has only performed its legitimate duty by asking Mr. Modi to quit if he cannot prosecute the guilty. It cannot remain a mute spectator when travesty of truth and justice is brought to its notice. Winning an election cannot insulate a ruler from the law of the land.
